e100: Use pci pool to work around GFP_ATOMIC order 5 memory allocation failure
Roger Oksanen [Mon, 30 Nov 2009 01:17:29 +0000 (17:17 -0800)]
pci_alloc_consistent uses GFP_ATOMIC allocation that may fail on some systems
with limited memory (Bug #14265). pci_pool_alloc allows waiting with
GFP_KERNEL.
